This delicate and detailed Abalone Shell is cast in sterling silver. It is a life casting off a tiny abalone shell and is 1.25" long and 3/4" across.
What exactly is a “Life Casting” you ask? It is when you take a form from nature and reproduce it in metal by various methods of molding and burning out of the wax or the natural specimen. One only has one chance to mold a shell correctly before the specimen is destroyed or damaged irreparably. My old school jeweler friend, Pete Conder was instrumental in brining this piece to fruition. He created a cold mold around the abalone shell and subsequently injected waxes into the mold which he gave to me to detail for a master and permanent mold.
